Winter Wonderland Plaque


*This post is part of the November promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*

Morning crafty peeps,
I had this oval shaped MDF plaque and decided that the
would fit nicely centralised on it.

 through their The Clearing Stencil. Once dried I glued this onto the plaque.
I had the idea to use scrunched up tissue paper around the edges for texture,
 interest and a frosty feel.
So I tore up pieces of tissue, the gift wrapping kind, scrunched up the pieces and glued around the centre picture until the rest of the plaque surface was covered.

I used a green Distress Ink and a little blue colour with 
Cut and Dry Foam to add colour to the tissue.Next I added cream Mulberry Roses 
 blended with distress ink again and glued into position.
A small amount of Crushed Glass Glitter and some sparkly threads
 for hanging and the project was finished.
